I am really looking forward to March, longer days and warm sunny spring days. What is a Nana to do when it is continually dark and dreary? Time to bring in the bunnies.
I found this melamine bunny platter at Tuesday morning for $7. It hopped into my cart? What could I do but bring it home. The carrot dish is an old Hallmark purchase and it is filled with fake cookies. The Bunny pillow on the left is a Prairie Schooler Bunny.
Here is the BIG bunny! He was a gift from my friend, Terry. She was moving and had to get rid of some of her holiday decorations so she asked if I wanted THE BUNNY....any Veggie Tales fans out there? You may remember the Veggie Tale rendering of the story of Shadrach, Meshach and Abegno . named Rack, Shack and Benny. The Veggies were working in a candy factory and Mr Nezzar, their boss told the boys that they had to bow down to the giant chocolate bunny . They were told to worship THE BUNNY. I think of this every time I bring my big guy down from the attic. Clearly Veggie Tales were aimed at children, their parents and grandparents.:) I put up my March Prairie Schooler piece along with my recent finish March Hoopla.
Old favorites made for my three Grimmlins by their Aunt Mina. I found the egg cups at Cracker Barrel and they are perfect for these glass eggs. They sit up high out of the reach of little hands.
My wooden bunny is on top of the kitchen hutch this year.
Another small Prairie Schooler Bunny.
One thing I do have to say about these bunnies is that they make me smile when I see them. They are just so cheerful and the spring colors perk up a dreary rainy day.
